Shorebird Tour with Chaplin Nature Centre:
 
The Chaplin Nature Centre is a world-renowned interpretive facility that is dedicated to the protection of critical shorebird habitat and migratory shorebirds. As part of the Chaplin Nature Centre’s 22nd Annual Shorebird Festival and Fundraiser, join us on June 1st as we survey the area for birds of all kind to help contribute to international population trend data, which also serves as important data for NCC’s property management plans for properties in the area! Spots are limited – register soon at https://events.natureconservancy.ca/al-event/shorebird-tour-with-chaplin-nature-centre/
 
 
Milkweed for Monarchs  Hospitality for Royalty:
 
On June 15th, come out and help us plant 800 milkweed plugs on Big Valley as part of our restoration plan for this property! Monarch butterflies are listed as an Endangered species in Canada and milkweed plants are the only food that the larvae of these butterflies can eat. Milkweed is critical to the life cycle of the Monarchs. Without milkweed these beautiful butterflies will completely disappear; their population has already dropped an incredible 90% over the past decade. Spots are limited – register soon at https://events.natureconservancy.ca/al-event/milkweed-for-monarchs-hospitality-for-royalty/
